I first experienced apple crisp in elementary school and from the first bite I knew this dessert was something special.  Throughout grade school and high school I ate this dessert at every opportunity and each time the dish tasted pretty much the same.

When I was older and left the mother's nest I sampled the dessert again while dining out at a local restaurant and the dish just didn't taste how I remembered it. So I looked around for some time until I found the recipe below that I will share with you today. 

No it doesn't taste like the apple crisp I enjoyed back in elementary or high school, it taste so much better.
